DU Member Achieves Great Heights (Literally)

On December 7th, 2015, Seattle Ducks Unlimited Chapter member Garrett Madison summited Mt. Vinson, the tallest mountain in Antarctica. In three weeks a team of five climbers traversed the earth’s southernmost continent, scaled polar glaciers across the Sentinel Range, and summited one of the world’s seven Summits. Garrett Madison was a part of aviation history the moment they touched down on the first Boeing 757 in Union Glacier Camp, Antarctica. In total, Garrett soared in the skies on a Boeing 757, Russian Ilyushin Il-76, DHC-6 Twin Otter, and a Douglas DC3 on this expedition. Additional digital content is available.
